Guest Bio

Dave Dellecese is a writer and author of comics, children’s books, graphic novels, and more.

He is the co-creator and writer of the middle schooler turned superhero graphic novel, Lacey & Lily from Darby Pop Publishing.

His comic credits also include co-creating, writing (and occasionally doodling) the comic series Holidaze, the adult comedy series about the after-hours lives of mythical icons when they’re off the clock and hanging at their favorite watering hole. Dave has also contributed to the pages of Ink Puddle Press' comedy series The Devil and Mr Gandhi.

Outside of comics, his most recent work is Frank the Barber, a historical fiction tale set on Christmas Eve, 1943 in the city of Utica, New York.

A father of three, Dave is the author of the children’s picture book The Little Lamp about a small table lamp dealing with change and the re-discovery of purpose after being tossed to the curb with the trash.

He occasionally reflects on life and parenthood at his blog, thedorkydaddy.com

A former journalist and news anchor, he has written for newspapers and broadcast, contributed to What to Expect, the companion website to the best-selling parenthood series What to Expect When You’re Expecting, and appeared on The Weather Channel and The Today Show.

Dave also lends his voice to The Brass Lantern old time radio adventure podcast, playing former reporter-turned private investigator, Wam Dixon.

When it comes to the world of four-color comic adventures, his influences sway toward the Silver Age and Golden Age of comics. His master’s thesis was on the use of comic books as a form of American propaganda during World War II, and has given several lectures on the subject.
